Ray Bradbury was always tinkering with his writing, especially his scripts. Gauntlet Press has already published IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE with its four variations of his script. Gauntlet Press is proud to be publishing five versions of Fahrenheit-451 he wrote beginning in 1955.
First, though we’re offering Bradbury’s second manuscript of his acclaimed novel that he typed — in facsimile fashion. The manuscript differs in a number of ways from the published novel.
Among the scripts Bradbury wrote there were three plays, one screenplay and a musical version of his novel.
There will be more including a number of Bradbury’s famous doodles that often accompanied books he signed for fans.
The book is edited by Elizabeth Nahum-Albright, daughter of Donn Albright who edited all of our other Bradbury books and assisted Elizabeth. There will also be b/w and color photos Elizabeth took of Ray’s house and office on glossy paper.
The lettered edition will contain a previously unpublished short story.
The cover will feature two Bradbury paintings (one on the front cover, the other on the back).
This could well be the last signed Bradbury title from Gauntlet Press and they're going to make it truly unique. We will continue to add material as we prepare for layout.
The book is close to 800 pages in length.
Phoenix 451 comes in three versions:
A 150-copy numbered version signed by Bradbury. With each of our many Bradbury titles we printed extra tipsheets as some were damaged by our printer. Those that were unused were returned to us. We call these “classic” tipsheets, signed by Bradbury though not for Phoenix 451 ($150)
A 350 copy unsigned edition. This version is identical to the numbered but it is unsigned ($75)
A 52 copy lettered edition signed by Bradbury (these are not the “classic” tipsheets but sheets he signed for a book prior to his death). The book is also signed by William Shatner who wrote a short introduction. ($1500)
